I have one hive and it is going strong. I feel like I should flip the two brood boxes because my queen keeps only to the middle box and not much on the bottom box. Thoughts?

Welcome to the forum Lisbethanne. I would just let the bees figure it out.

Welcome to the forum, Lisbeth Anne.  I would agree with tefer2, some people do rotate boxes, I like brood most anywhere.  I run ten frame supers, and have 3 or 4 frames of brood in the third super on one hive.  I also have a TBH that has brood on half of the frames.  I worry when I see little to no brood.  Good luck to you and your bees.

Welcome, Lisbethanne! I know "Hopelessly Lost" is how bees can make us feel, but please go to your Profile and change your location. That will give others a better idea how to answer/help you, based on your climate.

You may want to post your question in the General Beekeeping Thread. I think more people keep up on that one. (I'm a first year beek, and I don't *think* you want to rotate boxes this time of year, but let's see if some other Tx Beeks have better advice!)
